The May 23 weekend will be a significant one for the home-grown a cappella scene - a veteran act are reuniting, while a prominent group are playing farewell shows.

On May 23, members of In-A-Chord are going tutti after a decade-long hiatus. The pioneer sextet will perform at the Esplanade Recital Studio, to coincide with the release of their fourth and new album, Elements Of Cool.

Also on the same night, popular quintet Budak Pantai will stage the first of their final pair of gigs before calling it a day. The swansongs - the other show is on May 24 - will be held at the Esplanade Concert Hall.

Tickets for In-A-Chord's reunion gig at the 245-capacity recital studio are sold out. Similarly, Budak Pantai's May 24 show at the 1,600-seat concert hall is also sold out. The May 23 gig was later added to cater to the overwhelming demand.
